Wolves winger Matt Jarvis has emerged as a surprise summer transfer target for Arsenal according to the Daily Mail, having also previously courted attention from Liverpool.

The 25-year-old has drawn many plaudits for a number of impressive displays over the past two seasons, to the point that the England fringe international has now been linked with a move away from Molineux.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperately looking to improve his playing squad at the Emirates Stadium ahead of the new campaign, and is believed to have now earmarked Jarvis as a potential recruit.

Arsenal's ongoing Juan Mata transfer saga now looks to have hit the rocks after the Gunners' reluctance to come up with the money needed to bring him to England from Spain before club captain Cesc Fabregas' future has been fully resolved.


Scouts from north London were deployed to Portman Road on Saturday to run the rule over Jarvis, who was due to play in Wolves' pre-season friendly with Ipswich Town. However, Arsenal representatives were left disappointed after the talented winger missed the game with a minor groin injury.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has also been credited with an interest in Jarvis, having been heavily linked with a move in the January transfer window.

But having already recruited the likes of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing to Anfield this summer, it is unlikely Liverpool will be doing anymore business in the Reds' midfield area before the start of 2011-12.
